    "The Grim Reaper"

    As promised (to satanzhand) My Grim Reaper sculpture,conceived in 2004 by Rafael Torres (the concept,the hood & scythe).My contribution was everything else (inc.skull,robe,hands,base & lettering). Skeleton & scythe r stainless steel,robe is hot roll sheet. It is titled, "Angel of Death(Angel de la Muerta)." Two Slayer fans with welding equipment,dangerous combination.

    Probably 14"+ tall. The piece is owned by Rafael. We used 2 work 2gether in side by side departments. He watched me do tig sculpture 4 a few years,then tried his own hand with this sculpture. He got stuck after welding the "hood", and asked me 2 finish it. He also made the scythe blade.

    While not a fan of Slayer, sorry, that is some awesome work.

    How did you make the letters at the bottom of the sculpture?

    Looks great... Were the metacarpals and phalanges made out of a single piece or did you make each one individually and weld them together?
